The case management office serving residents affected by the High Park and Woodland Heights fires and subsequent flooding in Larimer County has established new operating hours.
The Long-Term Recovery Group of Northern Colorado (LTRG-NoCo) office will now be open Tuesday through Friday between 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The office is located at 215 East Foothills Parkway, Suite 1EB, Fort Collins, CO 80525 (in strip mall north of Macy’s).
Residents can make an appointment with a case manager by calling 970-646-8879 or visiting the LTRG-NoCo office. An appointment is necessary to meet with a case manager.
To be eligible for assistance, residents must have suffered losses in the fires and/or flooding. Residents must meet with LTRG-NoCo case managers, who will assess situations, identify resources, and refer residents to possible sources of assistance, including funds available from the LTRG-NoCo.
A limited amount of funds have been raised to date for survivors who have not been compensated from insurance or other sources. Eligible uses of the funds include the following:
· Health-related issues
· Repair or replacement of primary homes
· Repair or replacement of personal property
· Loss of livelihood
· Temporary housing needs
· Other compelling needs.
To prioritize funding distribution, the LTRG-NoCo will consider factors such as financial need, documented disability or health need, single parent, older adult, immediate need for safe housing, and other compelling factors. Documentation, as appropriate and available, may be required by case managers to verify need.
The Long-Term Recovery Group of Northern Colorado is made up of more than 50 nonprofit agencies, government organizations, faith-based groups and concerned citizens.
Those wishing to contribute to the LTRG-NoCo Fund can do so through the United Way of Larimer County, which is serving as the fiscal agent for the group. Visit www.unitedwayoflarimercounty.org or call 970-407-7000 for more information.
